Prepayment Plan

Northwestern University is offering a prepayment plan through our QuikPAY payment platform.

The prepayment plan is an installment payment option for payment on the student account.  Students and families can pay in monthly installments leading up to the due date for the term’s charges to spread out the amount due at the start of each term. Plans are designed around the annual, quarter, or semester academic calendar used in the student's school.

Cost to Participate: 

  • $55 enrollment fee per plan 

Signing up:  

The plan is available for all students in early June through CAESAR.
  • Students can enroll in the prepayment plan throughout the year, but please note that enrollment in the prepayment plan is for future term charges, and the sooner you enroll, the more benefit you will get.  On this help page, scroll down to see target dates.
  • Undergraduates will see a quarter plan automatically displayed in QuikPAY. 
  • Students in other careers: please email us at or so we can display the plan matching your academic calendar.
  • If you do not see a plan matching your academic calendar please reach out to Student Finance as above.
